Savory Shortcake

Back when I was preparing and training for MasterChef, I spent a good deal of time thinking about potential ingredients, challenges, etc. I brainstormed about unique ideas I could put forth, that may bring an edge to my game.

Today’s post is one of the ideas I came up with – just a fun, summery appetizer: Savory Shortcake!

I almost feel guilty about posting this today, just a day after my Sushi Cake yesterday. My roomie from MasterChef ended up posting about it, saying that I have this “thing” about making savory dishes look like dessert. I thought “What? I’ve done it like.. twice now. What?”… and now, this. Ok, three times! (The first time being my Buffalo Chicken Buns!)

Anyway, this savory take on shortcake starts with a savory baking powder biscuit, topped with a cheese infused whipped cream, and crowned with jewel like cherry tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinegar. SO GOOD.

This would be great served as a light lunch, appetizer at a garden party, or with tea. Also, as the result of weird schedules being subject to my whim.. I can tell you that this makes a great breakfast, too! Enjoy!

    That looks really tasty.
    It reminds me a bit of my favorite way to serve poached eggs, with cheddar cheese melted over a biscuit or English muffin, thick slices of tomato (or grape tomatoes) and basil or thyme on top. I’ll have to try your recipe, and play around with the cheese whipped cream, that sounds delicious.

    “Cutted and pasted!” This one look so good! No slight intended to the sushi cake, I’m just not a fan of cold rice. I LOVE pretty much anything with grape tomatoes and basil!

    Have you thought about making a cookbook themed around making savory foods based on desserts? I think that would be pretty darn cool!!!
